Here are some details about a recently released pen tablet from Wacom. The Intuos3 12x9 is designed for photographers, designers, artists and engineers who use large displays such as the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD display. The new Intuos 12x19 has an active area with an aspect ratio similar to the screen ratio of either a widescreen display or standard displays used together.
The satin-gray finish of the Intuos3 12x19 gives it an “industrial” look that suits its no-nonsense brawn. With physical dimensions of about 17” x 24” and an active area of 228 square inches, the 12x19 delivers a lot of tablet for the suggested retail price (SRP) of $779.95. It includes all the features that have made the Intuos3 line of pen tablets the de facto standard for serious photographers, designers and artists. These features include a patented cordless, battery-free Grip Pen for comfort, 1,024 levels of pressure sensitivity for control, programmable ExpressKeys for easy modifier keystrokes and keyboard shortcuts, and finger-sensitive Touch Strips for scrolling, zooming, controlling brush size and more. The Intuos3 12x19 also includes a unique feature for extra-fast navigation called QuickPoint.
